With the endless number of luxury labels in Bangkok, sometimes it’s hard keeping up with new releases all the time.

That’s why we’ve created this Weekly Obsessions roundup, in order to give you an exclusive list of all the highly covetable items we are lusting over. Browse through our specially selected, top-rated picks to uncover what our editors are obsessing over this week.


COMME des GARCONS x Heimat Atlantica Tote Bag

When speaking of COMME des GARCONS, their quirky, cutting-edge designs usually spring to mind. That’s why I was very excited when the brand launched this straw tote bag (THB 17,500) in collaboration with Heimat Atlantica. Simple and down-to-earth, it’s made from natural straw, which is delicately hand-woven in a checkerboard pattern by Portuguese craftswomen. I can already picture myself looking casually chic on my lazy weekends at the beach or picnics in the park with this striped tote bag by my side. – Chanya Ormtavesub, Staff Writer


Angel Wings Float by Funboy


With the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018 being the talk of the town lately, it has set every girl’s dream on fire. Because let’s admit it, every girl secretly wants to become an angel. The picture perfect spreading of wings and the waking up flawless every morning is quite dreamy and charming. So when I saw this Funboy’s Angel Wing Float (Approximately THB 4,208), I knew it was my time to shine — even just in the pool. Noon or night, as soon as my swimsuit-wrapped body is gently enveloped by the soft floating wings, my femininity rise above the shame that the object takes over a quarter of my community’s pool. Look out neighbours, you’ve got a new angel in town. – Kankanit Wichiantanon, Staff Writer


Pandora Mickey Mouse Charm


Know who is truly ageing gracefully? Mickey Mouse. Celebrating the 90th anniversary of the adorable cartoon character, Pandora has released this adorable limited edition Mickey Mouse anniversary charm (THB 5,000), in an accessory that is giving me serious #ThrowbackThursday vibes of the sweetest kind. Designed in collaboration with Disney artists, the sterling silver charm features Mickey leaning on a 14k gold milestone number 90, for a playful addition to any charm bracelet. I didn’t know I needed to wear the cute pop culture mouse on my wrist every day, but now I do. Flashbacks to eating cereal and watching cartoons every morning galore! — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer



Rochas Crystal Logo Slides


For quite a few seasons now, the furry footwear fad has still shown no sign of slowing down, elevating its status from street-style wear to high-fashion glamour. For Autumn/Winter 2018, Paris haute couture brand Rochas also embraces the trend by launching this pair of Crystal Logo Slides (THB 34,900) — which strikes the right note with the legendary phrase “It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!”. Made from pink lamb fur, these shoes are super soft and comfy to wear as a breezy alternative to winter boots. With their crystal bucket, they help to pull your overall ensemble together with a sparkly, luxurious touch, too. – CO


THANN Eden Breeze Colour Treated Hair Conditioner



I’ve searched far and wide for the proper conditioner for my dyed hair, but never quite found one that made the cut — well, until now! This Eden Breeze Colour Treated Hair Conditioner (THB 550) from THANN has come to the rescue, breathing new life into my chemical-treated strands and dry split-ends. Within a week, I found my hair looking bouncier and healthier. Infused with antioxidants, this organic conditioner gives my hair a high dose of vitamin A and E. It also ensures my hair colour looks fresh and fabulous at all times, using botanical extracts of almond and coconut oil. Not only does it offer a serious, intensive treatment, but also some aromatic floral scents of jasmine and rose. That’s probably why people keep asking me what smells so good. — CO
